#52: Friday and Boyz n the Hood (with Greg Buckman)

DAAAAAAAMMMMNNN, Sean and Matt had quite the adventure with this Snob. Three Snobs, two movies, one incredible theme about the hopes, triumphs, and tragedies of the intercity. O yea, and how Ronald Reagan was a very racist person. 

At the suggestion of fellow Snob and guest for the day, Greg Buckman--a man wise in the way of race relations and the untold narratives of American history--Sean and Matt devote this wonderful Snob to two films: Boyz n the Hood and Friday. One a drama, one a comedy. Both deeply human with moments of sadness and those wonderful aspects of the human spirit that we generally call hope.

These two movies are triumphs of 90s cinema that continue to carry prophetic messages about race in America. What is perhaps most amazing about these movies is how similar they are, considering one is very very sad and the other is very very funny. Like, roll on the effin' floor funny. Like, piss your effin' pants funny. 

Join us listener, because great stories and splendid cultural criticism await you if you would just hit that play button. Many special thanks to Greg for making this Snob possible.
